Late 50's, married 6 years to an amazing man, adore my tiny little dogs, just got my first KitchenAid Stand Mixer!!
My favorite things to cook
cakes, cookies, special meals
My favorite family cooking traditions
Favorite family dessert is an old family recipe for lemon pound cake that is given to the girls at 16 with admonitions not to share it as is but there are specific changes you can make if you wish to share. Still turns out good but not AS good.
My cooking tragedies
as a 20 year old bride, I decided to make chicken and dumplings. I had made them for years for 8 people. I put in chicken for 2 and dumplings for 8 in a smaller pot than my mother had. Ended up with a HUGE dumpling with a little chicken buried in it.
